I had to buy it. This is as close as I'll get to living the life of gentle beauty that Alicia lives. I saw the photos of her Blackberry Clafoutis in the morning and it was so beautiful. It's not the first time she's written about Clafoutis, she wrote about it here and here and probably more places. So now I too will have Clafoutis. Twice. And for a moment, my life will be filled with gentle beauty as well.

I can't believe I'm spending so much time talking about the weather. Clear sign of advancing age- preoccupation with weather. Frankie is so going to disown me. Already I constantly ask her how the weather is there, and so far she's putting up with me but it can't last. It just can't. Her putting up with me that is. Hot weather. That's what lasts.
But enough about that right? It's just July. Plenty of days to complain coming up.
Yesterday I decided I had to leave the house if only to go to the market. I needed a baguette to go with dinner and maybe something different for lunches.. so I headed out to Trader Joe's. I don't go there all the time, not that it isn't good, its just well, the food has too much flavor and my family doesn't like flavor. But I like their cheese enchiladas so it was worth the trip.
One thing I rarely do is wander the dessert area. Dessert is the enemy you know, and must be held at bay. But the freezer section was positively delightful so I was looking it all over. And I found this.
